The Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, has replied former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Chukwuma Charles Soludo, over his explosive letter which faulted his (Obi) administration as Governor of Anambra State.
Peter Obi and Charles Soludo
Recall that Soludo, who currently serves as the Governor of Anambra State, berated Obi’s performance while he was a governor, stating that the investment Obi left in government is worth next to nothing today.
In another publication on Monday, Soludo tackled the presidential candidate, saying he can’t win the 2023 presidential election.
Replying to the former CBN governor, Obi, while addressing elites on Tuesday at the 2022 Lagos Business School (LBS) Alumni Conference in Lagos, said he is praying for Soludo.
The presidential hopeful said he did his little as governor of Anambra State and urged the incumbent governor to also do his best in the state as an economics professor.
I Have Done My Little As A Trader
Obi, who described Soludo as his brother, said when a government vacates office, another takes over and continues with the other projects left undone.
He said: “Soludo remains my brother, we are very close. I remain prayerful for him. For other things I didn’t succeed in, God has given him the opportunity to do it and succeed.
“So, if there is anything pending, governance doesn’t finish, people are still in government in America, so you stop where you will stop, other people will continue from there.
“He is the governor of the state; he is my senior brother; he is even more intelligent than me because he is a professor, I am a trader, so he knows more and will be able to do things better than I am doing it.
“I have done my little own as a trader; now the professor is there, he will do his own as a professor, the schools I didn’t roof, he will roof them; that’s how the government goes.”
